Trendy Wedding Inspired By Nature

Bethany Jeffery Photography

It’s just a fact of life, if you put the time into making them, the details of your wedding will be 10x more meaningful. This was the reason Celina and Will chose to DIY just about every bit of their big day. What what about you? Are you ready to DIY some meaning into your wedding? If you need more inspiration be sure to check out even more of Bethany Jeffery‘s images in the full gallery here.

Advice from the Bride

My advice to couples planning a wedding is to go through the effort to make the details meaningful! On our entry table we displayed our rings on an old carabiner to represent our shared passion for climbing. Beside our rings was a note asking guests to bless our rings in a vintage typewriter that Will uses to write short stories and love letters. We crafted our ceremony and vows to be sure that they were accurate to our love and vision of marriage, and wrote them out in hand decorated notebooks.

Our reception centerpieces included vintage frames with old vintage photos that coordinated with the guests at the table, and at each place setting was a favorite typewritten love poem or quote. We made all of our table banners and a sign for our head table that reads “this must be the place”, a nod to one of our favorite songs. We also hand picked all the music, including key songs for specific people. To share a dance or a knowing glance when a special song came on was like a little gift.

We decided to have pies instead of cake for the simple reason that we both love pie! And there is just something about enjoying a hearty slice of pie when the fruit is in season and the sun is shining that makes you think, “Well if this isn’t nice, I don’t know what is.”

A Touch Of Class Wedding

Mackenzie Jean Photography

Sometimes the classic palette of red, black, and gold can get overlooked and many brides might think it’ s over done, or is too hard to do. We love this color palette and the options and opportunities it gives. It’s a classic and can be taken to a new modern level.

Amanda Douglas Events and a wonderful team of vendors took on the challenge and put together a touch of class wedding shoot that showed this color palette in a fun and chic way. If you’re going to do this elegant look make sure that your hair, makeup, and dress fit the part too. You are the finishing touch of your theme; you’re the cherry on top! See more in the full gallery here, captured by Mackenzie Jean Photography.

On the stunning details

The rich deep black of the table cloth grounds the whole look and gives you a great foundation to build your bright and bold table scape around. We had to have the gold chiavari chairs to bring that art deco, chic look into the shoot. We brought as many gold accents into the shoot that we could, without being too much. Like us, you can do this at your wedding in the stationery elements, type of drink you serve (champagne please!), cutlery, and in the florals (the vases, or sprayed flowers too). We always think the best way to bring in the red in this type of look is in the florals. Stay away from using too many of the classic red rose but go for some other fun red flowers like ginger, gladiolas, peonies and different types of orchids.

Make a statement with your cake

Your wedding cake is a great accent and element that can tie together your whole theme. If you’re going to have a wedding cake, and a gorgeous one, don’t hide it in the back of the room, or off to the side. Consider having it on the dance floor, lit well, until it’s time for your dance, or give it its own area by the bar, or in your lounge. With this cake, the designer- Laugh Love Cakes, pulled all the stops and gave it that wow factor. If you’re going to have a bold theme and bright colors make sure your cake is up to par. Make sure your cake is as bright and bold, with those touches of class that make it fit right in with the rest of the mood and feel of your wedding.
